Alex Pietrangelo isn’t a realistic option for the Avalanche

As one of the best defensemen the NHL, Alex Pietrangelo is going to have a lot of interested suitors, should he makes it to the free agent market this offseason. Due to their abundance of salary cap space and a desire to go “all-in” for a Stanley Cup over the next few years, it stands to reason that the Colorado Avalanche would likely be among them. Unfortunately, with the way the Avs have done business over the last few years, luring Pietrangelo to Denver doesn’t seem likely.

Until last week, it was believed that Pietrangelo had little desire to hit the open market.
